Winter in Spain

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are thinking of spending 3-4 weeks in Spain and Portugal next January and February. While we certainly don't expect the temps to be hot, we are just looking for relative warmth (40's and 50's). We are very frequent and independent European travelers, though we've not been to Spain. So our thought is to spend enough time to visit the big cities, and interesting smaller towns as well. We like to rent apartments, though we will probably stay in hotels as well, given how much traveling we will do there. We will use public transit and probably rent a car as well.

Before we start seriously booking and planning, feel free to tell us if it's crazy to go to Spain and Portugal in winter. We'd love to hear other Fodorites' advice and experience, especially with regard to weather, and of course any ideas for itineraries, places not to miss, etc. are welcome.
